As 2018 rolls around, so does the continuous stream of development proposals pour into what is said to be one of the best sub-market in west Brisbane, Toowong. One of Australia’s biggest property companies, Stockland, has just received the green light from the Brisbane City Council for their 25-storey triple-tower development just across Toowong Village.
It was in October of 2016 when the property developer lodged a submission for the three towers with plans of demolishing establishments on Sherwood Road and Jephson Streets.
Negotiations went on for over a year as the property developer and Council addressed issues, including the ones raised by the local community. These issues include the design, parking, tower separation, staging and open space. Throughout the entire negotiation process, the property developer acknowledged and responded to the concerns making adjustments accordingly.
They also provided a traffic engineering advice from TTM group responding to parking and traffic concerns.
For construction to begin, existing establishments will have to be closed for demolition including the Newsroom Cafe, Mountain Designs, Subway and Timbuctoo clothing store.
The new development will have over 500 apartments, a laneway cafe, restaurant precinct and green spaces.
